V-Rally 3 Shipped for the Xbox

Atari has shipped the latest installment of the hugely successful "V-Rally(TM)" racing series -- "V-Rally 3" -- to the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft. With more than 4 million units in the series sold to date, "V-Rally 3" -- already a hit on Sony PlayStation®2 -- promises to be the most authentic rally racer on Xbox. "`V-Rally 3’ presents an incredible range of tracks, fully detailed cars and a powerful game engine that allows for stunning graphics on Xbox," said Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and head of Infogrames, Inc.’s Los Angeles studio. "The vast array of interactive tracks, challenging AI and intuitive controls will satiate any rally fan’s desire for realism while at the same time maintaining the fun that made the `V-Rally’ series a worldwide leader in racing games." In the game, players pilot highly detailed cars across meticulously hand-crafted tracks, created to produce unprecedented racing realism. Scurrying spectators run from oncoming speedsters while deformed car parts fly off during collisions, making tracks and races come alive as never before. All of the most coveted rally cars on today’s circuit are included, including the Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 7, Citroen Xsara, and the Ford Focus. Gamers have the ability to customize each one to their own unique racing strategy and style. Three modes take gamers through the most extreme driving conditions including mud, snow, rain, standing water, bright sunshine and ice. Single and multiplayer versions of Time Attack and Challenge modes are included, as is the all-new V-Rally mode, where gamers live the life of a professional rally driver, strategically planning their careers, earning and selecting offers from major sponsors, and racing their way to the top of both divisions, 1.6 and 2.0 Liter. The powerful game engine allows for enhanced interactivity, including realistic car physics, destructible track elements, high-resolution cockpits and all the progressive damage that gamers expect from careening as fast as possible through hostile landscapes. The new collision engine and physics model provide the realism and professionalism that mud-slinging racers have been hungering for since the last incarnation of the franchise. The original "V-Rally" game, developed by Infogrames’ Eden Studios, the French software team known for its mastery of racing games, debuted on PlayStation in 1997. The game soon became one of the system’s benchmark racers and set the standard for racing graphics and great playability. Eden Studios brings its development expertise to "V-Rally 3." "V-Rally 3" for Xbox is available at North American retail outlets for an estimated retail price of $29.95 and an ESRB rating of ’E’ for everyone.
